Dick says you're wrong, GS....

Cheney says no one saw financial crisis coming


By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer Deb Riechmann, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 3 mins ago



WASHINGTON – Vice President Dick Cheney says that his boss, President George W. Bush, has no need to apologize to the American people for not doing more to head off the financial calamity, saying no one saw the crisis coming.

During an interview Thursday with The Associated Press in his West Wing office, Cheney defended the administration's performance on an economy that is growing weaker daily and which recently collapsed in spectacular fashion. Cheney said that "nobody anywhere was smart enough to figure it out."

He said Bush doesn't need to apologize because he has taken "bold, aggressive action."

Apparently they used all of their magic insight dust looking for nonexistent WMDs and just had none left when a REAL crisis wandered in leaving warning flares every week for years.

Wonder who will carry his big ol box of hubris once he leaves the White House?

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

GS: "Ron Paul saw it coming"
Cheney: "Ron Paul is a nut case doomsday prophet"
GS: "But he was right all along."
Cheney: "F**k you."
